Next Friends of Rawcliffe Meadows Work Party is on Sunday 10th May from 10:30 at the Pond

The next Friends of Rawcliffe Meadows Work Party is on Sunday 10th May 2015 from 10:30 until 13:00 at the Pond. The following one is on Thursday 21st May from 6:30 onwards on the New Meadow. In both cases we’ll be weeding up to 30 cm around the tansy plants to reduce competing vegetation while letting the Tansy Beetles feed on adjacent non-tansy plants, and leaving us a path to manage, count and admire them. There’ll be a strimmer in action, rakes and some fine hand weeding jobs o do.

There are many hundreds of beetles in the Pond compound now, but less at New Meadow. We’ll also have the other new and potential beetle areas to manage during the summer, including Blue Beck bank, adjacent the cattle grid at the north of the site, along with some in the Reservoir Basin.

Volunteers are welcome for all or part of that period. Wellies and glovesmay advisable, at least as protection from the nettles.

Attached are pdf’s of the walk leaflet and the activities list in case you have anywhere to post them.
